Frequent closures (FCIs) and generators (FGs) as well as the precedence relation on FCIs are key components in the definition of a variety of association rule bases. Although their joint computation has been studied in concept analysis, no scalable algorithm exists for the task at present. We propose here to reverse a method from the latter field using a fundamental property of hypergraph theory. The goal is to extract the precedence relation from a more common mining output, i.e. closures and
